Turning an upright freezer into a kegerator

by Manage My Life Last activity date:
November 21st, 2012

I have a Kenmore upright freezer 253.9287412 and I need to be able to adjust the temperature to the 30 - 40 degree range in order to store beer. Specificially, can I get a replacemnt thermostat (possibly one from a refrigerator) that will allow me to run the unit in the 30 - 40 degree range instead of the 10 - 25 degree range? A little rewiring for the connectors would be ok.

Thanks Marc and Scott. I ran across another thread which took an approach I wasn't aware of. On the thermostat there is a small set screw, in this case right above the adjustment knob, which is used as a coarse temperature adjustment at the factory. I was able to turn that screw to the right (in this case) and raise the temperature from freezing levels to around 40 degrees. It took a lot of trial and error to get it to the temperature I wanted but fortunately it ended up working out great.

Thank you for your question. I’m listing the part number from a top mount refrigerator. The thermostat is # 5304421256 that

may

work. The mounting could be different. I hope this will help you.
